The Landing After Hours: "World War I Medicine" at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site

World War I pushed the boundaries of modern medicine. Doctors, nurses  and others struggled to keep up with the devastating impact of this first, truly modern war. There were more than 40 million casualties (both civilian and military) and 20 million deaths as a direct result of the war. The United States had more than 320,000 casualties with over 10,000 from Missouri. Disease, particularly the 1918 flu epidemic, caused over a third of all deaths. This presentation will explore how medicine and medical practitioners responded to battlefield injuries and disease during the war. 

For 2019 the Missouri State Museum's "Museum After Hours" program, held the first Wednesday of each month, moves to Jefferson Landing State Historic Site at 100 Jefferson St. Doors to the Lohman Building will open at 6 p.m. and the program will start at 7 p.m. Convenient parking is available in the lot next to the Lohman Building.
